eh finally got the damn things on. what a pita. how did you guys get the last stud on the top right side of the front manifold. My stud came out to far and the tip was against the header port. Couldn't get a nut on there so I had to cut the stud shorter.

you take out the stud and use a Bolt in there instead. and you install the Bolt on FIRST, the reason you put it in first is that it can be bolted up with leaving the bolt tight against the header while the header slowly moves towards the head.


this is how i installed Jordies (blackriders) headers, well that and while they were off the car as well.
